Lowell/Overdales Claimform - old Paypal Credit Debt.


Recommended Posts

Hi forum. Here on the suggestion of a family member who has had successes based on advice here in the past. Looking for some geenral debt advice for two debts that Lowell bought

 

Very (shop direct) debt - £2400, opened in 2013, defaulted in 2019. Have been making token payments of £1 since then. Received a letter from Lowell's offering a 80% discount. Pay £480 in three payments

 

Debt 2 - PayPal Credit - £505, opened in 2017, defaulted in 2019. Sold to Lowell recently, (last 5 months). Haven't made any payments. Recently received a letter stating they may issue claim form within 15 days if I don't get in contact.

 

My first plan was to send a CCA for each account and take it from there. I assume s.78 is the correct category for both debts?

if lowell are offering a discount something might well smell here.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

I figured the same when the 80% discount letter came through the door for the Very account 

 

Not sure how to check regarding PayPal. I'm assuming it is PayPal EU due to the date when I started the credit agreement being 2017. Lowell letter simply states PAYPAL regarding the name of the debt.

How do you know it's PayPal credit, you remember signing by tick box?

 

Got old PayPal emails ...agreement copy should be there.

 

PayPal eu credit rather than PayPal UK makes enforcement interesting and might answer the reason for the sale ..get it??

I vaguely remember the set up process being a case of "click here to apply" and terms and conditions but can't remember much else.

 

No old emails unfortunately. Email address tied to the account was purged by Microsoft after it got hacked. Regained access but all emails gone 

 

PayPal have a service that lets you download all data they have for you so I've requested that to see if it'll also show any agreements I've made

Shame payments are being made running the sb date to infinity.

Cheers mate, so wait for my data from PayPal which should take 3 days according to them on average and wait to see if Lowell follow through with a letter of claim.

 

Indeed annoying about the Very one. Did not know anything regarding debts being SB and payments affecting that until recently. Having read up on some threads, paperwork must be shot if they are willing to only accept 20% of the debt. Will send CCA request to them tomorrow

PayPal data came back. Didn't have any documents that I'd agreed to etc, simply stated the name of the product I signed up for which is "PP_UK_PPC" which I assume translates to "PayPal_UK_PayPal Credit". My account was opened in 2009 but the PayPal Credit was not signed up until August 2017

The information document they sent with my records simply states PayPal. No mention of whether it was PayPal EU or PayPal UK besides my PayPal credit application.

 

"Financial Application Status - PP_UK_PPC - Approved"

 

They did send a secondary note that simply talks about how data is handled etc. Here they mention that PayPal EU is the responsible entity, but this is simply in regards to making a complaint and seems very generic rather than it being specific to my account

 

According to the PayPal credit t&c, I can ask for a copy of the credit agreement free of charge by contacting them directly by mail or on the phone

Good well you keep all that to yourself.

Read upload

Get it all up to one mass pdf.

 

CCA request lowell.

 

Then watch the fake paperwork they send, which will be nothing like what you have got from the OC.

 

It concerns me you say

You never ever speak to or ring a powerless dca- they will lie and say anything over the phone to scam you out of money. That they will never put in writing as they would get fined for saying it.

It's thanks to my brother that I hadn't spoken with them. Never dealt with DCAs before besides Lowell. I spoke with him about it not long ago and he told me to shut up and not talk to them at all and get on here, have a read then make a post.

 

What information is it that I should upload. Regarding the PayPal account? I only have the personal information that PayPal sent which means I'd need to redact the whole thing besides account creation date and PayPal credit application date. 

 

Will send CCA to Lowell regarding PayPal tomorrow too

Ok well let it run

To me this looks like a paypal eu credit agreement, of which, we've not seen any being enforced in our jurisdiction, which would explain why PP did not goto to court and crush you themselves.

Soz about the long time not updating.

 

Came home to find a fire had happened in our house, so that has taken priority since.

 

Between now and my last post, my PayPal debt that Lowell bought was passed to Overdales who first sent a letter that they would be acting on behalf of Lowell, and then a letter threatening a claim form being issued if I did not get in contact with them within 30 days.

 

That claim form was issued on Monday 18th.

 

My CCA Request letter sent by recorded delivery was "lost" by royal mail, so that's great, will deal with the compensation for that later.

 

Will resend the CCA Request on Monday to Overdales.

Will acknowledge the debt on MCOL and make an account later today.

Looking at posting my defence tomorrow due to being away with a terminally ill friend over the next couple of weeks so looking to get this section out of the way. How does this look for a defence?

 

Particulars of Claim for reference

 

What is the claim for – the reason they have issued the claim? 

1 The claim is for the sum of £581.63 due by the Defendant under an agreement regulated 

by the Consumer Credit Act 1974 for a PayPal account with an account reference of XXXXXXX

 

2.The defendant failed to maintain contractual payments required by the agreement and a Default Notice was served

under s.87(1) of the Consumer Credit Act which has not been complied with.

 

3.The debt was legally assigned to the claimant on 15-09-21, notice of which has been given to the defendant.

 

4.The claim includes statutory interest under S.69 of the Country Courts Act 1984 at a rate of 8% per annum from the date of assignment to the date of issue of these proceedings in the sum of £26.13 

 

The claimant claims the sum of £607.76

 

Defence

 

The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.

 

1. Paragraph 1 is noted. I have had financial dealings with PayPal  in the past but cannot recollect the account number referred to by the Claimant.

 

2. Paragraph 2 is denied. I am not aware of service of a Default Notice by the original creditor the Claimant refers to within its particulars of claim. 

 

3. Paragraph 3 is noted.

 

On the 25/04/2022 I requested information related to this claim by way of a Section 78 request, which was received and signed for by the claimant on 27/04/2022. As of today, the Claimant has failed to respond to this request, and therefore remains in default of the section 78 request and therefore unable to enforce any alleged agreement until its compliance.

 

4. Therefore it is denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, and the Claimant is put to strict proof to:

 

(a) Show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement and:

(b) Show the nature of the breach and evidence by way of a Default Notice Pursuant to s.87(1) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

5. As per Civil Procedure 16.5 it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.

 

6. By reason of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed, or any relief.

financial dealings 

 

did you not ever send a cpr 31:14 request?

 

i'm also wondering if a line concerning this is out of jurisdiction for eu debt?

 

also did overdales solicitors send you a letter of claim before they raised the claim through northants bulk court?

Overdales did send a letter of claim 30 odd days before sending a claimform.

 

No, never sent a CPR31:14

 

There has been some back and forth in this thread as to whether my PayPal Credit agreement was PayPal UK or PayPal EU. It was before Brexit that is for certain

The agreement details weren't included in the data I got from PayPal. It simply states that my financial credit application was successful and that the product I got was called "PP_UK_PPC".

 

Not a single document showing what the agreement was that I signed up for. I am not even sure if it is actually a full on SAR that I received. I simply used PayPal's on site process to request the data they held for me.

 

I received phone numbers, bank account details, email address, addresses tied to the account but absolutely nothing about PayPal Credit besides "PP_UK_PPC".

 

PayPal Europe shows up as the data controller, with a UK based office. But again that information isn't specific to my account. Even logged out, PayPal Europe shows up

 

I will get a CPR 31:14 sent out tomorrow.

 

In the mean time, what should I do regarding the defence?

 

I won't be at home for the next two weeks so would really like to submit it tomorrow as I leave for Wales by 3pm tomorrow

Are you sure this type of credit agreement is a regulated CCA1974 agreement ?
